Mark Ronson & Katy B - Anywhere In The World
This Olympic-inspired track, which is set to be performed at the Olympic Torch Relay live show at London’s Hyde Park on July 26, has been developed by Mark Ronson, who recorded the sounds of five athletes. Without Ronson’s signature brass section, the highly synthesised result, featuring rapid-fire drum beats, does not obviously scream the handiwork of the producer du jour: the lyrics are uninspiring while Katy B’s vocals sound dreary.
Scissor Sisters - Only The Horses
Sounding like a Calvin Harris track featuring the falsetto tones of Jake Shears rather than a Scissor Sisters number co-produced by Harris, this single heralds something of a return for the quirky New York band. Uplifting piano chords dominate on this future-pop track taken from their forthcoming fourth album Magic Hour.
The Saturdays - 30 Days
The slick production and memorable hook about waiting 30 days to love throughout this classic, hands-in-the-air euphoric electro-pop track from the girl group will surely rocket their new tune to the top of the charts.
